Nothing less than a decade-defining show! There's no doubt this is the absolute best crime drama ever made considering it's the one that started it all, setting the standard for everything that came after. I loved CSI for so many reasons but mainly because of how intense the cases always got, how gripping every episode was, and most of all how much the city itself made a huge impact on the different stories as if Las Vegas were part of the cast ... that's something amazing I haven't yet managed to find anywhere else in the genre. Needless to say, I binged my way through the seasons! I have to say I hated them for killing off [spoiler]Warrick[/spoiler], him being my favourite and all, but at least we got to see Greg up till the end #hilarious

Among a few key aspects that separate this show from other shows in the crime genre, the most important one is the character Gil Grissom. He brings a subtle and humane warmth so much needed amidst all coolness and manliness that make the other CSI shows fall flat. It brings contrast. The show lost a lot of appeal when his character left. I powered through two more seasons, and I will probably pick the other seasons up, but not nearly with the same anticipation.

Even after 14 years and about 300 episodes I'm still loving this show.
